Today was a fun day as I went back to my old workplace to celebrate my mother in laws birthday. I worked as a rollerskating waitress at a 50's place right before I started teaching. Yes, you heard right.... a ROLLERSKATING waitress. They called us carhops. We danced and performed in various places with celebrities and have been on countless TV shows. I used to swing dance on skates and do lifts and flips. Yea... those were to good ol' days. Now, I'd be lucky if I could even rollerskate. LOL. Those were such fun memories! When I first pulled up, this catering car was parked out in front. OH. MY. GOSH. No words. Really.
This is a really a....um..... non flattering picture of me on the catering car. I guess it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't DRIVING ALL OVER TOWN!!!!! Sheesh! My kids however thought it was pretty cool....except my firstborn. He let me know that I looked "weird" because the windows of the car just happen to land right on me. Of course. You see. I told you. I have NO. WORDS.
Another thing that I did this weekend is put a new little product on TPT. It's my fully editable table number labels or rather, just labels that you can use any which way you'd like. It's on TPT for only $1.50 and comes with 8 different designs. Maybe you can use them in your class to label supplies, table numbers, or whatever.
I used them in my class for table numbers. The picture here is not the best since my printer at work was all screwy and made the chevron pattern weird. I assure you that the file is perfect though. I tried it at home and it was fine. School was starting the next day so I just slapped some construction paper on these and used them for my class until I can get back to reprinting them this week.
OK, now....for my (insert echo sound here) FIRST EVER GIVEAWAAAAAAYYYYYY.......
Since I'm kinda a newbie on this TPT thing, I haven't gotten the hang of everything yet. It takes me FOREVER to get my units ready to be posted on TPT. Creating the previews take a long time. I don't know if I should do a collage of all the pages or full size sample pages... so I do both. Collages do take up a good amount of time for me. I feel like I'm taking the long way around to do things. There are other things that I could use help on in being more efficient in making my products. I seriously feel like I need some of these expert TPTers to sit with me while I create my units so that I can ask them all the questions I want as I encounter them. Any takers??? :)
